    It is also possible to tell by the fins in some individualls but that are far less reliable. The easiest/safest way in young fish is through tubing.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Actually it's called venting, males have same-size anal and genital openings, females have a larger genital opening. (When netted and turned upside-down.)
    Male = oo
    Female = oO

    There is some variation in vent size between different species, but the general priciple applies. Eggs are larger than sperm, and require a larger opening to pass through.
